Rosie O’Donnell & Barbara Walters apparently did some good acting Monday for Rosie’s first dayÂ back from vacation.Â But according to Us Weekly, O’Donnell & Walters had a bit of a throw down before the show in the makeup room where Rosie called Barbara aÂ liarpants.Â
Apparently when Barb was trying to give Rosie a welcome back hug, the Rose recoiled & yelled,Â “You kept me in the newspapers this whole time!…You didn’t call me for 10 goddamn days, and you didn’t tell me what you were going to say on television!”
While this was going on, the producer of The View,Â Bill Geddie, entered the room & told Rosie, “You’ve crossed the line.”
To which O’Donnell replied, “Cameras are now outside of my house where my wife and kids are.”
The history, as you know, goes back to last month when Rosie called Donald Trump aÂ â€œsnake-oil salesmanâ€ onÂ the showÂ after Trump went on a rampage about Rosie, calling her a â€œloserâ€Â & â€œpigface”.Â Oucharoo.Â Trump also revealed that Walters had confided in him, saying that she regretted hiring O’Donnell as a cohost forÂ The View.Â Even more oucharoo.Â
Barbara had to respond to all these remarks, so she carefully worded a response, “I’m sorry there is friction between Donald and Rosie. That said, I do not regret for one moment my choice to hire Rosie O’Donnell as the moderator of The View.”
By the end of the makeup room quarrel, the claws were out, with Rosie telling Barb,”You went all around this and never called [Trump] a liar. You never said, ‘Donald is lying.’ You never called him a liar.”
While Walters tried to defend herself, the Rose railroaded her & said, “Are you looking me in the face and denying you didn’t tell him you didn’t say this? You’re a [bleeping] liar.”
A rep for both Rosie & Barbara released the following statement, “Whatever happened in the hair and makeup room was hardly a squabble. It’s business as usual, everyone has moved on.”
Yeah right.Â I think Rosie’s going to need the biggest & nicest fruit basket there is to get over this one.
What do you think- Is Rosie O’Donnell in the right to be furious as Barbara Walters over this whole comb–over Donald Trump thing?
